The Gift of 'Newness' in the New Year
Someone once said there are regulators on our lives that help control and shape our destinies. These regulators include things we often take for granted like energy, sleep, food, money, and time. Wise management of these regulators can mean the difference between an average and an abundant life.
Another important regulator is what I call “newness.” Every 24 hours we are greeted by a new day at midnight. Sunday morning brings a new week. On our birthday, we celebrate another new year of life.
The Bible speaks of God’s promise to us of “newness” in this life:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23, ESV)
With each new start, those who love God and follow in His ways are greeted with these new mercies. We likely will not know until we get to heaven all the ways these “mercies” are manifested in our lives. They are the small and large interventions where God propels our lives toward His plan.
I don’t know about you, but I’m very thankful for the new mercies of God every day.
